cain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> well, first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody
as the replacement for secretary hillary clinton. but republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham said they questioned statements that rice made after four americans were killed in that september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. it is within the power of a single senator to stop a nomination, which is why the president got his back up today. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation, is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity of the state department, then i will nominate her. that's not a determination i've made yet. >> pelley: this will be a donnybrook. so we asked wyatt andrew
not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. >> what else did senator graham say? still licking their wounds from an election night trouncing. >> if you had said to me three weeks ago, mitt romney would get fewer votes than john mccain, and it looks like he's 2 million fewer, i would have been dumbfounded. >> dumbfounded. is all this a sign that republicans are now ready to meet in the middle on issues like immigration and taxes? will they move faster on immigration? you can join our conversation on twitter. you can find me at @tamronhall and my team at @newsnation. having you ship my gifts couldn't be easier. well, having a ton of locations doesn't hurt. and my daughter loves the santa. oh, ah sir. that is a customer. let's not tell mom.

understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> okay. so it took senator john mccain about an hour to make it to the s senate floor to offer a response. >> that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> seems like the testosterone-fueled rhetoric over benghazi is sort of getting out of control. former cia operative bob behr joins us this morning. good morning, bob. >> good morning. >> i want to make it clear to our viewers what lawmakers want to figure out. there are three separate hearings about to take place today. this is what they're trying to figure out. one, why didn't the united states increase security in libya? two, did the obama administration try to mislead people as to the nature of the attack? and, three, did the administration deny pleas from our people at the consulate for help? let's start with the first. why didn't -- why didn't -- why wasn't th
cain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's the slow burn from the president, i'd say. this morning mccain had some strong words for his former opponent, the president. let's listen to mccain. >> i know that people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars, and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, senator lindsey graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, "mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm not going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you failed as commander in chief before, during, and after the attack." what's behind all this anger? is it political or personal? and why are they unleashing so much vitriol against amb
and even years. >> lindsey graham says petraeus better testify this week. his number two is now going to talk about the lead-up and what happened in terms of benghazi. but do you think he'll eventually have to testify? how much pressure do you think there is coming from capitol hill? >> i think there will be quite a bit of pressure. but it's not like his deputy isn't reading the same files that he is. i think they'll get just as informative a briefing from his deputy as you would from petraeus. but there will be pressure from capitol hill, definitely, going forward. we'll have to see what happens. hate to say it. there are a lot of questions out there right now. >> let me bring in senator bernie sanders. always good to see you, senator. good morning. >> good morning, chris. >> let me play you first what peter king had to say on "morning joe" today. this is the point he's making. >> he is a key part of the president's foreign policy team, maybe more than any other cia director in recent time. he was going around the world negotiating various understandings and agreements, i'm aware of
the political gaps over immigration. republican senator lindsey graham and democratic senator charles schumer say they plan to restart immigration reform talks in hopes of getting a deal through congress. their plan will focus on forming border security, secure citizenship documents, fairer, legal immigration and a path to citizenship for immigrants already in the united states. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is with us from d.c. jessica, is the obama administration saying anything about the graham and schumer plan as it starts to formulate here? >> hey, ted. they haven't commented on the plan so far this week, but graham and schumer are re-engaging on a proposal that those two senators first outlined in march of 2010, and the white house supported that r proposal then. that proposal has four specific components, not just tightening the bord, but the key component is a biometrics social security card so only those here legally can be hired. that is sort of can considered the key linchpin that could get a lot of republicans on board. also a path to legalization, a process f
graham said the gop would be open to other means of increasing revenue. >> we don't need to raise taxes, we need to limit loop shoels and deductions for the wealthy. >> while members are not supportive of the tax plan, john boehner are urging them to make compromise, something president obama senior adviser david axelrod called encouraging. >> there's money tbe gained by closing some of these loopholes and applying them to deficit reductions. >> one half of those automatic spending cuts would affect the defense department's budget. david martin shows us what that means for the military. >> reporter: the dreaded sequestration would double the $500 billion in cuts the pentagon is already planning to make over the next decade. defense secretary panetta has not minced words. >> if sequestration goes into effect it's a disaster for national defense. >> reporter: the strategy of pivoting away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan towards the pacific and an emerging chinese superpower would come undone. >> all of that can go to hell if this congress doesn't face up and deal with the issue of s
. lindsey graham said the truth will never come out about that night if petraeus keeps quiet forever. >> you can't get to the bottom of benghazi without him testifying. i want to hear from gen. petraeus what he knew before, during and after the attack and there's no substitute for his testimony, in my view. >> paula broadwell emerged from her brother's northwest washington home yesterday. and in a strange bits, the twist with the other strange details, mrs. broadwell's north carolina driver's license was found by a jogger in rock creek park monday and authorities say they have no idea how long it had been there. >> thank you very much. i see one of the tabloids here is referring to this as real house lives of sitcom. >> but there are many unanswered questions. why is the white house and eric holder potentially getting a pass in all of this? it came out a few days ago that eric holder, the attorney general of this country, knew that the fbi was investigating the director of the cia but apparently as close a friend as he is of obama, he never told obama until two days after the election. do yo
together information on on the point person on this. senator lindsey graham made an important statement -- >> we have four dead americans in benghazi. we have a national secure failure along in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. so from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. >> his second is going to step in to give that testimony now. but could he be compelled to testify? >> he would then be testifying about potentially classified information. but i think congress could certainly call him. you presume the agency second would also have been briefed on what was happening and could give adequate testimony as well. i think republicans for a lot of reasons still want petraeus there because he's the person they wanted to talk to. i think one of the things to remember is there is a slight distinction. the fbi initially was not investigating general petraeus but the potential hacking of his e-mai
. >> republican senator lindsay graham on "face the nation" this morning, molly ball, take a listen and see what he said on the other side. >> we have a national security failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi, before, during and after the attack, if general petraeus doesn't testify. from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress. >> molly, how is this benghazi back and forth likely to work out in light of these petraeus developments? >> well, i think we have to remember how much we still don't know. we still, i mean the petraeus story just breaking on friday, and details still coming out about what was discovered and how. i mean we originally thought that this was more about classified information and now it seems like it's more about harassment. i think we have to be sort of humble in the face of all the facts that we still don't have. i think a.b. is right that at this point, they look like two separate stories. it doesn't look like they're entangled, except to the extent that petraeus is a pl
graham can't believe her name is going to come up. >> i can't see any circumstance that i would promote her or anyone else that was involved in this episode. somebody has to be accountable. >> you know what it feels like? her name was refloated again yesterday. it felt like a lot like a trial balloon just 20-gauge the republican opposition which is significance. the big question, green, you are absolutely right, how many democrats would toe to the republican side and say don't give it to her, give it to john kerry who right now looks like he might take over for lee on paw net two if and when he ever leaves. >> well, then it would be obvious the republicans wouldn't support her. if you are operating from the inside of this administration, you probably don't think that there would be that much of a negative review of her. if in fact she was just doing a good job in going out there and saying that on sunday. >> i don't think he wants to spend his political capital fight fourth susan rice. i think that's my opinion. >> i think you are right. >> well, let's talk news and then a little gossip
right senator lindsay graham said to get the answers that congress and the american people need about what happened that night, petraeus must some day fill in lawmakers about what he knows. shannon? >> shannon: they expect to get that story from him directly one way or another. peter, thank you. three different congressional committees will hold hearings this week on the benghazi attack. the woman taking a central role at one of the hearings is republican congresswoman iliana ross clayton and she joins us now live about what she plans to ask in thursdayee hearing. this is the only one held as open hearing. congresswoman, thank you for your time. >> guest: thank you so much. we're as bewildered as everyone wells the conflicting timelines about benghazi, what did the administration know, what did secretary clinton know, what did they do about. it fox has been pointing this out and the american people have a right to know. four americans died on that terrible day. and what we have learned since then is that there have been conflicting cables, one thing has been clear. those people in ben
and republican senator lindsey graham are resuming talks, talks that ended two years ago. well, the plan has got four parts here. first, requiring high tech fraud proof social security cards. second, creating a process for admitting temporary workers. also, strengthening border security and, finally, defining a path to citizenship for immigrants already in the country. here's what senator schumer had to say on "meet the press." >> we're talking to our colleagues about this right now. and i think we have a darn good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal, anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically and they know it. >> there are an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants here in the united states. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ted rowlands. >> i'm ted rowlands in for brooke baldwin. less than a week since the election, david petraeus has commandeered the national conversation. official washington is racing today to determine whether the downfall of the nation's top spy is merely a breathtaking sex scanda
who were very critical of lindsey graham as well as john mccain saying that there was money that was requested way back when to intensify security at some of the installations and they, some republicans were among those who denied that request and so that republican saying that they need to be looking in the mirror as to what may have gone wrong in benghazi. >> reporter: right. i mean, there's certainly a lot of finger pointing going on here and in some ways, look, for somebody like john mccain, for example, he has bee on a rampe about this from the beginning because it is personal for him. he was a good friend of ambassador chris stevens who were killed but also a lot of i think fair to say political baggage that's left over, particularly between john mccain and the president back -- going back to 2008. >> dana bash, thanks so much on the hill. appreciate it. >>> controversial comments now from mitt romney on why he thinks he lost the election. now other republicans are criticizing romney's claims. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting s
director mike forlmorrell. >> others including senator lindsey graham it's likely petraeus will be called on at some point. >> i hate what happened to general petraeus for his family and the families involved, but we have four americans dead in benghazi, a failure in the making. i don't see how in the world you can find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. so from my point of view, it's absolutely essential that he give testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. >> nbc news has reached out to general petraeus and paula broadwell, and so far there's been no response. jill kelley and her husband, scott, released a statement to "the new york times" yesterday, asking for privacy for their family. >> andrea mitchell, what happened here? the fbi's investigating this. a woman sends some -- first of all, tell us the nature of these e-mails that would prompt an fbi investigation. >> well, here's the situation. the woman, whom we have confirmed was jill kelley who was a married woman in tampa who did some social and
